Sunday’s Football Accumulator: Sun 16th December

After last weeks tough set of tips, which were compromised by a high number of shock results across a number of top competitions, I am hoping things settle down a little more for the tips yesterday and also Sunday’s selection.

There’s three games in the Premier League this weekend and although I would be tempted to do a treble on these selections, the fact that my selections would all be very short odds makes this a less appealing option. As such, I’ve added one more selection, at better odds, to hopefully land us a bigger value win.

There’s four of the top six in the Premier League in action on Sunday with Chelsea away at Brighton, Arsenal also on the south coast as they take on Southampton at St Mary’s but the big game of the weekend is at Anfield as unbeaten Liverpool take on Manchester United.

To supplement that, I’ve also included the Fiorentina v Empoli game from Serie A on Sunday which will certainly give the bet a more appealing odds for those seeking a decent return.

Next weekend will be the last set of fixtures before we head into the Christmas period of games, which is a very busy time for teams in the Premier League. Let’s hope we can head into that on the back of a win with these tips.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 16th December

Brighton v Chelsea – Away Win 

Chelsea had a real mixed back last week, losing away to Wolves and then following that up with a sensational 2-0 home win over Manchester City, a result which I feely admit I did not see coming. The confidence that win will give them should stand them in good stead against a Brighton side who have a decent home record and who have proven tough to beat, even by the top sides in the league. I do fancy Brighton to make a game of it and give Chelsea a scare, but I feel that the Londoners will have a real surge of confidence from last week and will pick up the three points here.

Southampton v Arsenal – Away Win

I do feel a little sorry for the Saints new manager Ralf Hassenhutl, this is a very poor squad of players and one which I feel has unsurprisingly struggled in the Premier League this season. The millions the Saints have brought in in transfer fees has not been wisely invested by the board or recent managers and there is no way I can see them getting a result here against an Arsenal team that are flying and who, up until Thursday’s game in the Europa League, had not lost in 21 games. Given the pace and freescoring ability of the Arsenal attack, and the Saints woeful defensive record, this should be a relatively comfortable win for the Gunners at St Mary’s.

Fiorentina v Empoli – Draw

I’ve picked this game because I like trends and the trends for both these teams are such, compared to their respective strengths and league positions, that I think there is real value in the draw bet here. Fiorentina are struggling a little in Serie A with four draws and a defeat in their last five. Empoli though, who were near the foot of the table just a few weeks ago, have won three of their last four and drawn the other game. All of those wins though have come at home and as such, I cannot see them getting the better of Fiorentina here. By the same token, the confidence of going four games unbeaten against a Fiorentina team that is drawing a lot of games (7 of their 15 games in Serie A this season), even though they are higher in the table, means that I really fancy this one to end up as either a 0-0 or 1-1 draw.

Liverpool v Man United – Home Win

Manchester United have held the upper hand in this fixture in recent times, with just one Liverpool win in the last ten games between the teams. Jose Mourinho has twice brought United to Anfield and defended to claim a draw over the past two seasons and in truth, I expect him to take the same approach again. However, this Liverpool side has shown more guile than others and they are also much stronger defensively, in much better form than United and now have Mo Salah finding the form he showed last season. After losing to Valencia in the week, United would love to take a point here but I think if Liverpool can grab a goal and force United to come at them, then I feel they will emerge as the victors.
